I was just on J&GSales website and noticed the price of the round receiver, hardwood stock 91/30s has gone up by $10. was $79.95, now $89.95.

not a huge increase, but worth noting.

They're pretty much the last to have done so. Classic, AIM, and others raised theirs back in November. Sucks for me that J&G is doing so right in the MIDDLE of my buy.

I've overpaid for both of my Mosins (voluntarily and due to circumstances, ie the one at Big 5 happened to be really nice, etc), but I should probably find one last 91/30 to hang on to.

I'd like a matching Tula, preferably an ex-drag...

Is this the first sign that the endless river of really cheap Mosins may be starting to ebb? Could we have emptied the warehouses of Eastern Europe and Russia so soon?

Maybe all the Crufflers who have 10 or 15 Mosins stashed away will start to sell when the price hits $300 or so?

Wonder how long the surplus spam can ammo will last at $90 for 440 rounds?

Century has them 3/$240 this month which is $80 per rifle. The non sales price is $94.87 though :(

All things considered.... these things have only risen maybe 5-10% in price the last 5-8 years. The lowest I ever saw them I think was 69.99.

Ammo seems to have been going down in price more or less.

Remember that the Comblock kept using 7.62x54R for other guns, so they still made ammo. Hell, they still use 7.62x54R; the earliest surplus I've used was dated 1989...

Are you going to Laguna Seca on Sunday? I have two new to me Mosin's I'm going to try out. I also have a Romanian SKS to try out, not mine. A friend bought it, took it to the range, FTF, took it home and cleaned the bolt. It has to fire before he sells it. By the way, did you go to breakfast last Saturday with the Central Coast group?

All of this WW2 stuff is really coming to an end. There will be spurts now and then, but the golden days of this stuff is over. When I had my C and R I used to get the Albanian Mosins which were not refurbed for $25.00 ea. when they were on sale. The u fix em m44 Russian ones used to be 19.87. and some were only missing a screw, or front sight etc. Those days 1995-2005 seem like a century ago now!

Unfortunately, I do not live in the area any more; I'm on the SF peninsula now.

Good luck with your new Mosins and the Romy SKS.

Hex M-N's are already getting scarce. Apparently there is still plenty in the Mother Land, but none that they're forking over at the time being.
